Book Review: “Amaze Them With God” by Kevin DeYoung

yplzqs4

So who remember the book Don’t Call It a Comeback by Kevin DeYoung? Well I do remember it but not something that made an impact to me or to others. I dont think it made waves or became a bestseller. Nor some of my Reformed friends ever mentioned or recommended it. I think it never rings a bell with you too. It was published in 2011 and the young, the restless and the Reformed is at its peak. So Reformed books and blogs (like mine) where in abundance and a book like Kevin DeYoung’s Don’t Call It a Comeback might get lost and end up in a pre loved bookshops.

I’m thankful that our pastor was able to preached at my father in law’s funeral service last Saturday. Also, for almost three months, he was able to preach on  Lord’s Day with a few members attending. Again sadly, since I’m still at home quarantine, me and my wife wasn’t able to attend yesterday. Praying that we will do it together next Sunday.

Anyways, here’s some quotes from the book, Mother to Son by Jasmine L. Holmes published by InterVarsity Press. If you like these quotes, please get the book by clicking here.

“God decided that you and your brother would be born as twenty-first century black boys to two black parents. He placed you in a lineage full of glorious complexity and gave you the task of learning how to glorify him in light of the ingredients he stirred into the pot of your identity. He invites you to delve into a deeper understanding of who you are as an individual so that you can see yourself in light of who you are in the grander story that he is writing.”
